Shop Makeup For Oily Skin

Don't despair - the battle against shine can be won! Though a dewy look is in, there's a line between a youthful glow and an oil slick. We've collected our favourite makeup solutions that can kick oil to the curb, or survive a sweaty workout at the gym.


Though makeup works differently on everyone, these products are designed to stay put, and last throughout the day. We know how hard it can be to find a mascara and eyeliner that doesn't melt or smudge or give you the dreaded raccoon-eye effect, but these work a treat for us!


When your skin is prone to oiliness, it can be really hard to find a foundation that keeps the shine at bay and looks just as good when you finish the day, as when you started. Try using a mattifying primer and/or a setting spray to really lock in your look. Another option is a mineral powder - these are so finely milled that they don't give you the dreaded powdery mask effect. A great setting or finishing powder can also go a long way to reducing shine throughout the day.


Blotting powders are becoming more and more popular - simply dab away the oil, no need to add another layer of powder. These banish oil while keeping your makeup intact - an essential for the gym, or a day out in the Aussie sun!


Still not sure about which makeup solution you need to perfect your look? We'd love to help! Simply fill out our makeup product recommendation form and we'll get you in touch with our trained makeup artists.

Does what it says

This truly lives up to its name. I recieved as a free gift, and I've never had a powder give such great results. I have large pores, and this is the perfect disguise. I wore it alone today NO makeup. Great results. Will be buying the full size product. Highly recommend.

My go to Primer!

I have been using this primer for the last couple of years, and love it! It’s a little pricey, but I believe it’s worth it. The bottle is a decent size and lasts a while. If you can splurge a little, definitely give this a go!

I have combination skin, and find this primer gives me a natural and subtle glow under any make up look, without drying me out or making me shiny.

Amazing coverage and staying power

If you're looking for a great full coverage foundation that won't wear off - look not further! This is by far one of the best foundations I've ever used and I'm always so impressed with the results. It lasts all day and never needs to be touched up or reapplied. It may be a little too much for someone with very dry skin but I think this is a great option for most other skin types!
